Daily Whimsy: Restraining Order Against God, Filed

Restraining order Whim

The Daily Catch - published on 05/07/16

An Israeli man has filed a restraining order against God, which was promptly thrown out by the judge who called it, “ludicrous”. The man argued:

…God had been particularly unkind to Mr Shoshan, treating him “harshly and not nicely”, though no specific details were given about what exactly had happened to make him feel this way. Mr Shoshan claimed he made several attempts to contact police to report God’s alleged crimes, and that patrol cars had been sent to his house on 10 occasions.

This may perhaps mark the day when the world officially became too litigious. Although, one does have to wonder how he expected the laws of man to enforce such an order and keep the Heavenly Father 200 yards away.

This brings to mind Psalm 13:1-2:

1 How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?
